Human-data interaction (big data visual analytics)

Project overview

We will research on integration of the outstanding capabilities of humans in terms of visual information exploration with the enormous processing power of computers to form a powerful knowledge discovery environment. This research will use the datasets that Queensland government and the QUT ecoAcoustic research group have collected over multiple years. Other big datasets, such as Amazon’s product review dataset, could also be used. Research question: What are good ways to support human interaction with big data?


This research will lead to new techniques for exploring big datasets.
One PhD student is currently studying and is expected to complete within 2 years. Looking for new research students.
